This gives the pavement the ability to distribute loads of the traffic before it arrives at the formation level. Normally, pavements are made of different layers:

Uses of Asphalt

Although asphalt is mainly used for paving roads, it can also be used for various other purposes. The versatility of asphalt makes it such a widely used material. Among others, it can be found in the following sectors:

  • Recreation (playgrounds, bicycle paths, running tracks, tennis courts…)
  • Industrial & Commerical (Dumpster Pads, Parking Lots.)
